A day after announcing a multi-platform broadcast deal with Turner Sports, the Alliance of American Football has confirmed a media partnership with the NFL Network.
NFL Network will televise 19 games in the spring season American football league’s inaugural campaign, beginning with Salt Lake Stallions v Arizona Hotshots on Sunday, February 10.
This will be followed by two games per week in prime-time on Saturday and Sunday night.
“NFL Network understands the mission and vision for the Alliance and what we are trying to accomplish,” said Alliance co-founder and CEO Charlie Ebersol. “This partnership will now keep professional football in its prime-time television spot, allowing fans to continue watching America’s most popular sport well into the spring.”
“Having live football games on NFL Network in February, March, and April will be a great addition to our lineup and a nice complement to our coverage of the NFL Combine and NFL Draft,” said Mark Quenzel, senior vice president of programming and production at NFL Network.
